San Diego, CA – With the San Diego ‘Comic Con’ now a day behind us, news has surfaced that EA is working on a live-action film based on the Dead Space franchise. In 2008 an animated feature based on the game was released, which functioned as a prequel to the story laid out during Dead Space itself. Though a studio willing to support the project has not been found yet, this is already the fifth movie project EA is currently working on. The other four games currently known to be receiving the ‘movie treatment’ include Army of Two, Dante’s Inferno, Mass Effect and The Sims.
The new movie will be entirely live-action, though a script for the film is not yet in place. Director Daniel John Caruso has been attached to the project. Caruso is known for directing tv-series and films such as ‘Eagle Eye’ (2008), ‘Disturbia’ (2007) and ‘Taking Lives’ (2004).
The scifi/horror game was released in late 2008, and received excellent reviews. The EA-owned studio of Visceral Games is currently working on a sequel to the game and has also planned a third instalment in the series.
